1/72 F-8s, Fujimi, Esci
Robert’s F-8s inspired me to take these pics and post them. I thought I was the last guy to have that old Fujimi kit on a display shelf! I built these in the mid 1980s. Robert’s AMT kit is an Esci re-pop. I think I have at least 3 more of the Esci kits built and in deep storage. I left these two on display because the “D” and the French “Cruze” are unique. I really liked those Esci jet kits. Besides the built ones, I hoarded 3 more Esci Crusaders for the stash a few years ago when a guy was dumping them for $4 each at a show. You can never have enough 1/72 Esci F-4s, F-5s, and F-8s. Tip: The 1/48 Esci F-4 is a nice cheap kit too if you ever see one at a swap or contest vending table. Avoid the Esci 1/48 F-8, junk.
